It appears that the side window sills don't line up... I would think they should line up. Perhaps fill in the entire mid section? What color are you going to paint it? It would look good in "Limo" black with dark tint glass, via Tamiya window tint. Keep going with this!

That's a MAJOR transformation and I have to say I really like it! Great job especially on the roof extension in the rear!!! I see you used a couple more Imp's to get things in line. Excellent execution! Keep it up 'cause I can't wait to see more! :)

Looking good Bruce!

Remember the only door on the driver's side would be the driver's due to structural considerations. Full frame autos are limited by regs.

There will be up to three doors on the passenger side but two is the norm. One for the front seat passenger, and one in back for the remainder of the "guests".

Usually a bar or some type of entertainment center will be on the left side of the interior. As for the rest? Go crazy man, go crazy!

I've seen "Limos" with as many as 8 doors (4 per side) but the norm being 4 (2 per side) UNLESS it's a Late Airport Limo, which is commonly known as the "Mourning Funeral Limo" by today's standards, which the number of doors could be endless even if it was straining on the frame. I think a li'l History Lesson of the Limo is in order shall we?

Every limousine I have ever seen has at least two functional doors on the driver's side, one for the driver, the second door out back for the guests.

BTW, this looks like a great build! You solved that alignment issue... keep going!

BTW #2... nice job incorporating a formal roof line out back!
